The Balearic Islands & the crystal clear Mediterranean Sea
The Balearic Islands have become a second home for many people. Above all, the Mediterranean islands attract with their proximity. A characteristic that ensures a relaxed vacation from the very beginning, both in summer and in winter. Whether families on Menorca, active vacationers or motivated party people on Mallorca, luxury lovers on Ibiza or nature lovers and outdoor sports enthusiasts on Formentera, the Spanish islands score with versatility.
The largest island of the Balearic Islands polarizes. The name "Mallorca" alone conjures up a clear image in people's minds even before their first vacation on the island. However, the island stands for much more than just a party location and a hit (german pop)paradise. Breathtaking bays, white sandy beaches, crystal clear water and a partly untouched and fascinating nature should not be ignored. Of course, it would be wrong not to pay attention to the vibrant clubs and boisterous nightlife, because this is without question something that has made the island famous. It's just far from being the only thing that defines it. Whether racing cyclists on training camp, families enjoying beach vacations or lovers of the Mediterranean lifestyle, the island's audience is as diverse as its offerings, and all enjoy the almost seamless tourist infrastructure. A little tip, especially for the next family vacation in Mallorca: the kilometer-long sandy beach paradise in the north of Mallorca at Playa d'Alcudia or the wonderful beach Es Trenc in the south-west is a must-visit.
- Vacationers in search of dreamlike bays and beaches with the luxury of a seamless tourist infrastructure
- Motivated party vacationers
- Families who do not want to miss the pulse of the island and the hustle and bustle of the small towns during a beach vacation
- In colder seasons it's ideal for sports breaks and training camps of all kinds

Menorca, the second largest island of the Balearic Islands, promises breathtaking nature and a relaxed environment. Here, in addition to gorgeous bays and beaches, rugged cliffs and rolling hills await you that form a strong rise in some places. To appreciate this unique landscape, most of the island is protected and has been declared a Biosphere Reserve. Next to Mallorca, Menorca seems like the little sister from which mass tourism could stay away from.
- Nature lovers and sports enthusiasts
- Sun lovers in search of quiet bays with crystal clear waters and a pristine ambience
- Wind- and kitesurfers, because especially the north side of the Spanish island attracts with some rough wind

Ibiza is the epitome of luxury and freedom, paired with chic boho style! This gem in the Mediterranean beckons with charming coves nestled in forests of pine trees. A vacation on Ibiza is like a trip back in time to the wild 70s, because the island has managed to capture the spirit of the hippie movement. The uncomplicated attitude to life and the lived freedom is served on Ibiza with the right portion of glamour and pure luxury. The fairytale Spanish island is a world unto itself, a little escape. Whether it's pool or yacht parties, elegant beach clubs, delicious food or relaxed day trips to art and design markets, Ibiza is a colorful bustle full of harmony!

Formentera is considered the little Caribbean of the Mediterranean. The second smallest island of the Balearic Islands enchants with crystal clear water and white beaches, but also with a rugged coastline, in which unspoiled coves hide, contributing to the charm of the island. This small natural paradise is off Ibiza and does not have its own airport. To get to the island, you have to take a ferry across the turquoise waters - there are several routes here. Once on the island, you can explore idyllic little villages like Sant Francesc Xavier, wide sandy beaches that merge into the clearest turquoise of the Mediterranean at Platja de Ses Illetes, and unspoiled nature like the Cap de Barbaria nature reserve.
- Nature and active vacationers who love swimming
- Caribbean fans with little time, looking for a European counterpart
